I've only been briefly looking at the garden blooms as I have been madly sewing, but you have to love Double Delight - she is such a pretty Rose.
Second Hand school uniforms being purchased from networking with neighbours, and as an added extra thank you, I made a little Nichole Mallalieu Purse to put the money in. Love this little pattern, so easy to make and such a great result each time.
As I hadn't been out of my sewing room for hours upon hours, Miss Flowergarden decided to join me, and she started making a runner for her new dressing table. She chose all the fabrics from within the inner sanctum, and the funniest comment came from Master Flowergarden (14), when he said . . . "like, did you just have all those fabrics there ready to use?!"
Now I'm ready to start school for the year as I have made myself a new school bag,
As I have realised the deadline for this lovely long holiday - I have gone slightly into panic mode. I have enjoyed being out in my garden, but it was time to hit that new sewing machine and tick off a few jobs on the list.
. . . actually this first job wasn't actually on the list, but I decided to make a little quilt for my new sewing machine to sit on. I just need to bind it and it will be done. Very satisfying to do a tiny project like this that was finished almost in one day.
AROUND THE BLOCK was my next thing on the list. We had a month off for holidays and now it's back to it. I finished this one off for Sherridan and the next one arrived in the mail today.
I'm getting a new "shade house" down the side of my house. It is going to be my outside playroom, like my sewing room is my inside playroom! I feel very lucky indeed to have such a clever Mr Flowergarden!
I also have a brand new sewing machine!!! Sewing some of my favourite fabrics for my maiden project.
